  1. Fizz goes off !!!

    Riiiight because everyone who lives on the continent of Africa lives in a mud hut and is starving right? Over 55 countries and 1.2 billion people, all of them starving right? Fizzdale needs to thank those great Europeans for enslaving his ancestors is what you're really saying. There are cities on the continent of Africa that are better off than the city of Memphis and they would look down on Memphis as an impoverished, uneducated city. They are so many things wrong with that one statement that I don't even want to begin to go down that road. Great. so you watched Henry Louis Gates on PBS and Cornel West somewhere so now you're an African American Studies scholar? Your line of thinking is the same line of thinking where the state of Texas was trying to rewrite history by saying that "African immigrants immigrated to the U.S. for the chance at a better life and jobs" it's friggen ridiculous. I'm pretty much finished with this topic because some of the content is really getting ridiculous. I'll end my posting with these 2 pieces of information for the 2 of you: Was the Civil War About Slavery? Confederate Statues Were Built To Further A 'White Supremacist Future'

    Here's the definition of browbeat: You said Fizz was browbeating you. Those are your words. I understand the definition perfectly well. You're right, history is messy. I'm not saying whitewash it and I don't agree with those who do (although you yourself just tried to whitewash slavery by stating the the very real treatment of them was making them look like victims). I said put the statues in a museum somewhere. Just as history is messy and you seem to be fine with that, people are inconsistent. So if you view Fizz as being inconsistent oh well, that's natural human behavior. Why can't you accept it and move on? Someone asked him a specific question, he replied and gave his opinion. I have no idea how that is browbeating you or being inconsistent. Was he asked a specific question about Mt. Rushmore?

    I agree that more positive things need to be promoted. That information is out there but rarely mentioned in school systems. That's what I mean about how people's world views are shaped by what they are taught. America's school systems don't teach stuff like that but in no way do I think we should ignore or excuse the abominable treatment of enslaved people. They were beaten, raped, killed and lawfully were 3/5 of a human being. There's no way to overlook that and as far as them being victims, if someone were to kidnap all of your family members tomorrow, hold them in bondage for multiple generations, rape them, murder them, sell them off, beat them, I don't think you would want to overlook how they were treated. I'd chip in to have Lawler, Ric Flair (Memphis born) and a 10-foot tall statue of that wrestling trophy/bust/statue thing that you used to spin around before Channel 5 wrestling started. That would get my vote in Coliseum Park!

    Where did I say the North was perfect? How is Fizzdale browbeating you? I'm sure he doesn't know you and doesn't care to know you. he just expressed his opinion. He doesn't care (well, neither do I) if you agree with him or not. Men and women see the world differently, just as people from different ethnicities see the world differently, just as people from different socioeconomic classes see the world differently. Most people's world views are ingrained in them from a young age from the way they were brought up to who brought them up to the school system they learned in, etc. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind on a Grizz board and I sure as heck don't think Fizzdale stating his opinion is browbeating anyone. if that's the case, why are you browbeating, me Fizzdale and anyone else who disagrees with you? I don't need you to be my conscience.
  6. Fizz goes off !!!

    People have been obsessed with race well before you, I or anyone else on this board was born, well before social media. This is nothing new. It's been going on since before this country was even founded.
  7. Grizzlies Predictions

    SI: Which NBA Teams Could Go From Playoffs to Ping-Pong Balls in 2017-18? Memphis Grizzlies ESPN's mock draft has Memphis at #11 which means they think the Grizz will miss the playoffs and be in the lottery.
  8. What Does Marc Mean?

    Do you have family in Barcelona? Prayers for everyone affected over there.
  9. Fizz goes off !!!

    Of course they would. They wouldn't stay in Trump-branded hotels either. This is not just Fizz, it's also Pop and Steve Kerr and LeBron and Kevin Durant. it is really crazy what is going on in this country and it's funny how people say the statues should stay up so we don't repeat history. We are already repeating history as evidenced by this 1947 anti-Fascist propaganda piece put out by the U.S. War Department. Add in Latinos and Muslims and you can't tell if the film was made in 1947 or 2017.
  10. Fizz goes off !!!

    Well, the "champagne dreams on a beer budget" comment was true. I agree with Fizz's comments that we need to take down statues honoring the Confederacy. He mentions that Dr. King was killed in Memphis, that's a fact. He mentions that the Civil Rights Museum is in Memphis, that's a fact. It's his opinion that it's a disgrace to have statues honoring a failed, rogue splinter nation in Memphis and I agree with him. The Confederacy was a failed, rogue, splinter nation that took up arms against the U.S.A and spilled the blood of U.S. citizens, over 625,000 people were killed as a result of that war. Why in the world should we honor a faction like that? I'm fine with putting all of that in a museum but to honor them with statues in public parks? That's ridiculous. They should be taken down, put them in a museum somewhere. How many countries honor people from the side that lost in a civil war? it makes no sense. This is what people want to honor and/or defend and/or get upset with someone who says we shouldn't honor these people? You have a problem with someone saying, "take down statues" that honor the people who caused this calamity in our nation? We are all people and this affects all of our lives. It doesn't matter if you are a street sweeper or a physician or an NBA head coach or a taxi driver. You don't just live your profession 100% of your life. They are humans and as a human, Fizz is asking the people of the city of Memphis to do the decent, rightful thing. Put them in a museum somewhere, I don't care if private money put them up. They should have never been put up in the first place. oh and let's not forget that while some of these statues were erected during Reconstruction, a large number of these statues just happened to be erected during the time of the Civil Rights movement in this country and the Confederate battle flag which lay dormant for nearly 100 years was coincidentally resurrected and brought back during the Civil Rights movement as well. I don't think those were coincidences.
  11. Fizz goes off !!!

    Are you a 49ers fan or something? Don't watch them. Simple solution. I have no problem with Fizz's words. It's the off-season, it's not like he gave an in game interview or something.
  12. What Does Marc Mean?

    I'm fine with trading him. He'll probably never get what he wants with the Grizz and the Grizz are in decline. Trade him while you can and try to get at least 1 first round pick, a couple of serviceable starters and tons of cap relief. Knowing Wallace, he'll probably try to trade him for Chandler Parsons.... Wallace to Hollinger: "Hey, what do you think about having Chandler Parsons on the team. I know he's been injured the past couple of seasons but boy he could stretch out the floor and play some point forward for us. I think Marc and 5 first round draft picks would be enough to get him. The salaries match" Hollinger: "Uhhh, Chris, we gave him a 4 year, $96 million contract in the 2016 off-season" Wallace: "Really? well doggy, knock me over with a feather, who knew he plays for the Grizz? Oh well, never hurts to ask. Bye golly. You know I keep a list of injured players in my Rolodex that we can easily attain. Guess I need to update it. "

    You sleeping on Ivan Rabb............d'oh!
  14. The Return of Tayshaun Prince?

    I try my best, can't you just picture Tay Tay out there running point forward for us after Parsons goes down after yet another knee injury?
